28th July 2017 – Chew Valley Lake

Very dull and drizzly day – not really a birding session to Chew Valley Lake, as little ones in tow, but just happened to have a camera with me so couldn’t resist.

Lesser black-backed gulls, house martins, swallows and swifts. Pied wagtail and a yellow-legged gull (2nd summer juvenile according to Ian Stapp who I was pleased to meet for the first time) and a common sandpiper. Flyover Canada geese, little egret and grey heron. Pleased that the older of the little ones could recognise most of these – younger of the little ones did well on recognition too.
